Wooden Bed Frames Are The Timeless Piece That’ll Transform Your Bedroom

For the perfect sanctuary.

When you’re in the midst of your home spring cleaning or perhaps are just looking to give your bedroom a bit of a refresh, bed frames are not to be overlooked.

Aside from mattresses, they’re probably the most fundamental part of a haven-like bedroom – and can dramatically change the look and feel of your space.

Wood bed frames are classic, work back with a plethora of aesthetics, and usually the most sturdy choice. But with so many in market these days, it’s hard to know which one to choose.

Not to mention (unless you’re a bit of a handyman wizard) you need something you can set up easily so it doesn’t just end up as a pile of spare parts in the corner.

We chose our favourite wood bed frames based on ease of setup, sturdiness, style and longevity.

Rise Bed Frame

from $1600 (usually $2000) at Ecosa

The Ecosa bed base has to be one of the easiest wood frames to construct. It’s got nifty metal slide-locks that connect each section, so you don’t need any screws or talent with drills. Made of solid American Ash Timber, the pieces are heavy – you might need help getting the packaging up stairs if you live alone. But it makes for a strong, sturdy bed frame that’ll last.

Our only advice would be to ensure you really do slot it together correctly because if you don’t slide those locks into place it can be creaky. It’s easy to cut corners because it’s so quick to assemble, but you’ll get the best sleep if you follow the setup rules!

Key features:

  • Available in ash and walnut colourways
  • Natural wood grain finish
  • No tool assembly


Timber Bed Feame

from $1355 (usually $1445) at Eva

Another light wood bed frame, the Eva frame not only looks amazing, but is also FSC certified, so it’s good for the planet as well. It also has some excellent little additions like a slot to hold your phone, and curved slats that slide effortlessly into place and won’t budge. Assembly takes 30 minutes max which includes all the unwrapping, and doesn’t require any tools (seriously), so it takes the experience from painful to painless. 

We also love that the Eva frame sits closer to the ground if that’s your favourite aesthetic. It definitely helps to make your space look bigger and brighter, which is a big bonus if your bedroom is on the smaller side. 

Key features:

  • Ethically sourced timber
  • Free metro delivery and returns
  • Five-year warranty

What is the best wood for a bed frame?
